Ordered this strings as one of xmas presents for my boyfriend. He plays
Yamaha FG830 and always uses these strings, he loves them. Daddario EJ26 are pretty longlasting - 1 month of playability and nice sound are ensured, sure when you play something about 2 hours a day, not 8.
These strings are good enough to play Folk, Blues and similar music.
We use condeser microphone for recording and the result is great.
So, to sum up my review here are some pros and cons:
1) great, rich bronze sound
2) pretty longlasting
3) reliable (never got a broken string)
4) easy to set up and hard to confuse, strings are color coded
1) at the beginning they sound metallic and a little time must pass
to get the right sound
2) not the cheapest ones
Pros cover cons and make Daddario EJ26 strings one of the best acoustic strings. Sure there are more options, some of them are better, but their price are nearly 2 times higher. These strings have
great Price/Quality ratio.
Cheers and have fun playing msic.
